The Spanish–American War was a conflict between the Kingdom of Spain and the United States of America that took place from April to August 1898. The war was mainly caused by American demands that Spain peacefully resolve the Cuban fight for independence, which Spain was unable to do. Riots in Havana by rowdy pro-Spanish "Voluntarios" gave the United States a reason to send in the warship USS Maine to indicate high national interest. Tension among the American people was raised because of the explosion of the USS Maine, and "yellow journalism" that accused Spain of extensive atrocities. The war ended after quick, decisive naval and military victories for the United States in the Philippines and Cuba. Only 109 days after the outbreak of war, the Treaty of Paris, which ended the conflict, gave the United States ownership of the former Spanish colonies of Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Guam. The U.S. took control of Cuba, ended the insurrection, expelled the Spanish and granted independence there in 1902.
